31st SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (A) November 5, 2017

Malachi 1: 14b–2:2b, 8-10; Ps 131; 1 Thess. 2: 7b–9, 13; Matthew 23: 1-12

Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.


From today’s Gospel reading:


Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying...,

"Whoever exalts self will be humbled,

but whoever humbles self will be exalted."




Whatever the form our ministry and leadership in the Christian community takes, we carry within us and repeat frequently, the mantra of service Jesus has given us: "Whoever exalts self will be humbled, but whoever humbles self will be exalted."


So we ask ourselves:


  • How do I serve others as a disciple of Jesus?

  • What teaching of Jesus guides my service?
